there are a lot of cheap ones on the market that will bend or possibly break... ICON/DR is one of the best, and RIZE has another good one.... OUO has a single one but it performs better than most duals.... most of what you find out there cheap, will be just that cheap... your best bet is to save a little more and get one worth while.. just my opinion though

ICON Dual stabilizer

I recently have installed the ICON dual steering stabilizer w/ ICON shocks and I love them. My truck handles so much better and never feel the vibration of the road at all anymore. They look great too.

Dont know if it matters but really dont do too much off-roading. ALOT of plowing and towing though. Do i really need to spend $400+ on one or will a Rancho (or other $200 type) kit work for me?

You don't have to spend $400 to get a nice kit close but not quite $400 I got the procomp kit with fox 2.0 stabilizers $325 shipped to my door from trucktoyz I believe I went to their eBay store hope I helped. BTW I did have the rancho kit and they were ok but they didn't have even a quater of the return to center that the fox do!

Getting a high end stabilizer like Fox, icon, king, or radflo is a must but that is only half the battle... if you are putting a lot of stress the brackets can bend and break... procomp, fabtech, and so on are decent and less expensive... and you can probably get away with them but it comes down to if you wanna make sure the truck wont need a repair, or just chance it at that...

I have the Rough Country dual kit. Bought it from Top Gun Customz for right at $100 shipped. It took almost all of my death wobble from the truck. I plan on getting a new track bar and adjusting my caster to fix it for good. But for now, the stabilizers help a ton. I'm sure there are a lot of better brands out there, but the RC kit has sturdy bracketry, and mediocre shocks. But hey, for $100 you can't beat it at all!

I run the FabTech Dirt Logic stabs and have been very pleased with the way they soak up the bumps.
